Mesut Ozil, who is currently with the German squad in France has advised his teammates that a move to the Premier League would be in their best interests.
As reported by BILD (via 101 Great Goals), Mesut Ozil is impressed with the quality of the Premier League and wants more of his German compatriots to the join him in England. He suggested how happy he has been with his life in the country and also spoke highly about the atmosphere during the games.
“It’s especially tough and it increasingly difficult for smaller German clubs to keep their stars in the Bundesliga, especially after the new million-pound TV deal in England. The Premier League is very interesting and attractive. German youth players have excellent reputations, and top foreign top clubs become aware of them quickly”, said the Arsenal midfielder.
“If a player in the German national team asks me how it is in England, I’d reply: ‘If you have the opportunity to do it, do it!’ If I was again facing a decision whether to move abroad, I would do it like this again, 100 percent,” he added.
Ozil has had two brilliant seasons with Arsenal
The German has been a key addition to Arsene Wenger’s setup at the Emirates, and has flourished under his guidance. Playing as a number 10, Ozil put in a number of tireless displays and combined well with Chilean Alexis Sanchez.
Ozil made 57 appearances over the course of his first two seasons with Arsenal, and tallied an incredible 24 assists. When needed, the German managed to find the back of the net by scoring 10 goals. What’s even more incredible is that the 27-year-old accounted for 214 chances created in his two seasons at the Emirates.
Given the quality the German squad possesses, it will be no surprise if we see some Die Mannschaft players grace the Premier League. Players such as Thomas Muller, Julian Draxler and Jonas Hector are all linked with moves to various English clubs. Should Germany deliver the same performance at Euro 2016 that they did in Brazil, we may see many more Germans being targeted by the top Premier League sides.
